Who am I? ( a prayer to meditate on)

“Whoever I am, Lord, you know me, and I am yours”.(Dietrich Bonnhoeffer)

 

Whoever I am Lord…
  • You created me in your image, and breathed into me the breath of life.
  • You know of what I am made, you remember that I am but dust.
  • You own me, for you have created, chosen, redeemed, and adopted me in Christ.
  • You know and understand me, for you made me, love me, and care for me.
  • You forgive and accept me, as you make me clean by the blood of Christ.
  • You have dealt with the sins, regrets, mistakes and failures of my past life and ministry.
  • You have made me a temple of your Holy Spirit, who dwells within me.
  • You work all things for good for those who love you and are called according to your purpose.
  • Through the Holy Spirit you are transforming me into the image of your Son.
  • Though my outer nature is wasting away, you are renewing my inner nature every day.
  • Through these slight momentary afflictions you are working an eternal weight of glory.
  • Through our trials you are proving the genuineness of our faith, for your glory and honour.        (Peter Adam)
